Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm aware that both Google and Facebook offer two-factor authentication, by sending an SMS to your phone under certain circumstances.

What other popular or high-profile web applications support two-factor authentication? I'd like to know which services I should turn on two-factor authentication for, since (at least for the two listed), it isn't the default.

I don't really understand why this was closed. It clearly pertains to web applications as per the FAQ. It's focused on users, not developers. And most of all, it's useful - it guides folks towards (potentially) more secure web applications, and could provide a useful checklist of apps to enable two-factor auth on. Can someone please clarify why it was closed? –  Andrew Ferrier Aug 27 '12 at 23:04

Thanks, I didn't know about PayPal (although it looks like they've done it a dumb way: paypal-community.com/t5/Tips-from-Moderators/…). –  Andrew Ferrier Aug 20 '12 at 12:10
